Pre-integrated capabilities, including connectors, data caching, messaging, API management, rules management, and process automation, help provide a more consistent development experience.


Like most of Red Hat’s product portfolio, Red Hat Application Services are open source and tested by community users and Red Hat engineers. This coherent, integrated set of products and services provide consistent application development and a streamlined delivery environment for hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.


Red Hat Application Services enables developers to connect processes or data from on-premises to SaaS with standard connectors and across hybrid cloud environments. Developers have access to established languages, frameworks, architectures, and open-source practices for new development and existing applications.

Hybrid and Multi-cloud

Red Hat Application Services allows developers to develop and deliver cloud-portable applications independently from the cloud provider’s processes and procedures. The applications are cloud-agnostic and can be developed on-site and on-cloud using the same set of capabilities.

Red Hat Application Services helps you:

  • Manage and process messaging and streaming in a single and consistent way across clouds
  • Integrate consistently to a specific cloud provider’s services across clouds
  • Automate business processes across clouds
  • Make data accessible in a single and consistent way across clouds
  • Build applications with failover capabilities across cloud providers in a single and consistent way
  • Experience flexible scaling during high-traffic periods and migrate your applications to the cloud using the same consistent set of tools that you use on-premises
